I need to let you all know of a write-up I had in a great little publication called the NE Connection a publication of Northeast Oklahoma Electric Cooperative. You can see the article here on my website. I had so many calls from people from around NE Oklahoma I found myself needing to make Gold Standard Honey available in stores outside of the Tulsa area. So, go to my locations tab and now I’m in Pryor at El Humilde Mexican Restaurant, Harps in Grove, Nature’s Plenty in Grove, Grove Dental Associates in Grove. Yes my honey is available at a dental office, it helps to sweeten up the visit.

Evidence for the Use of Local Honey for the Relief of Pollen Allergies – by Chris Foster and Alyssa Foster
“Not an hour goes by, at the farmer’s market, before a customer asks if we have ever heard that ‘local honey helps people with their allergies.’ The response, for the past 10 years, has always been “Yes – we hear that a lot and customers swear by it, however, there is little direct evidence to [...]

Several of us vendors get together at 41st and Peoria in the Food Pyramid parking lot. The next market is Saturday, December [...]
Beware of Ultra Filtered Honey
Filtered Honey Has No Value According to a recent study done by the Food Safety News, three quarters of the honey sold in the US is not proper honey but in fact is ultra filtered honey. What this means is that the honey being sold is missing pollen. This is caused by the ultra-filtering the [...]
Buy Healthy To Be Healthy and Stay Healthy
Tulsa Is Going Healthy There’s just something about the Tulsa downtown area. I must speak personally, just a bit. I grew up in a small town in NW Oklahoma which was principally built in the late teen’s and twenties with all of the brick buildings and streets like you see in Pawhuska, Nowata, etc. Whenever [...]
Conversations About Local Raw Honey
I still am amazed at the dedication people have for living healthy, and are willing to fight the extreme heat, and higher cost of buying good food, real food, not franchised commercial food.Â I’m a teacher of 10 and 11 year olds, and when I see them get excited and focused on the “subject matter” [...]

Have you wondered how we extract honey from the bee hives in this modern day. Nowadays with the all of the new technology and manufacturing processes available honey can be extracted in several ways. At Gold Standard Honey the extraction procedure is very similar to the original way of letting the honey drip from the [...]
Honey Bees in the Garden
Oklahoma Honey Bees work extremely hard in this hot weather. Every journey a bee makes away from the hive places their life in danger. Rainstorms, predators, chemicals and the like can quickly put an end to a honey bee. It is very interesting to watch honey bees at work and we decided to could create [...]
Bees, Bees and More Bees Equal Local Honey
At the Brining Farm in Northeast Oklahoma it stands to reason that the more healthy bees we have, the more local honey we can produce. Today we produced a lengthy video that introduces our beekeeping and honey production. The large video was divided up in to several shorter videos to make them easy to watch. [...]
Into The Beehives at Gold Standard Honey
Working with Bees and producing local honey is what I like to do. With Steve Rush handling the camera duties we made this video on a warm Oklahoma July morning. This is the second video and it’s short and too the point. In this video we put on our bee keeping suits and take a [...]
Local Honey Video Introduction
Here it is the end of July 2011. It’s been hot and in Oklahoma we have had a severe heat wave and long drought. Yes it has affected all people and animals including the Honey Bees in our Beehives. Still we decided to do the videos of the production of Raw Local Honey. I plan [...]
Gold Standard Honey deeply appreciates the good people who faithfully use this locally foraged honey. You must realize that if a honey label sold in the Tulsa area has a local address on it, it does not necessarily mean that honey was foraged in NE Okla. Many honey labels I’ve see have this deception, and what they do is import honey from some other state and slap a local address on their label. They’re cheaters. Why is my honey higher in price, because Gold Standard Honey prices reflect the true value of this scarce commodity. It is inherently difficult to raise bees in Ok. In 2012 and 2013 we averaged about 35lbs of honey/hive. Many location such as Missouri, Wisconsin and some locations in Texas can produce upwards of 100-125lbs/hive.
Why is gold higher in price than brass? Gold is more rare than brass, Gold Standard Honey a true local honey is much more rare and thus precious for taste and health then what the cheaters sell. If you would like to know who the cheaters are, call me 918.530.1583 and I’ll tell you.
Caveat emptor. Only Gold Standard Honey can say, “We are a true local honey”.
All of you need to know that Cherry St Farmer’s Winter Market has a new location. We will meet every other Saturday at the Whole Foods Store parking lot at 41st and Peoria on the following dates:
We meet there from 8:30-11:00. Regular Cherry St Market will resume April 5th at 15th and Peoria.
There is a business of which I am associated with in Tulsa that we’re all very excited about. It’s called www.LocalPantryOK.com. Simply go to this website click on the local, organic, real food from local farmers, that you want and if you live in the Tulsa area will be delivered to your door. The farmers highlighted at the website are many of the same producers that can be found at Cherry St Farmer’s Market on 15th and Peoria in Tulsa. The concept and development was the brainchild of Adele Beasley of Heavenly Bread Co. in Tulsa. We felt that a more efficient effective means was needed to connect the hard working farmers of our area with the good people of Tulsa who appreciate good, real, food. With the bypassing of multiple middle-men, the farmers get a better price for their products and the consumer benefits with good quality food, produced right here in OK. And of course the money stays here in OK, benefiting Okies not foreign or out of state corporations. The www.localpantryok.com website is being updated and improved constantly, so stop by often. Be sure and look in the Sunday November 17th issue of The Tulsa World for an article with a great write-up.
